Reports from Houston are that assessment booklets and coded scantrons for over 20 HISD schools, KIPP and Spring ISD have been lost. Campus administrators are being required to pick up replacements and uncoded scantrons tonight. Students will be required to fill their scantrons with all necessary identifying information in the morning, increasing the possibility of reporting error. This will greatly delay the start of administration tomorrow. In addition, the loss of the coded instruments represents a great test security issue.
Comment from the TEA has been requested.
Update: The TEA has refused to comment on the reported loss of assessment and scantron books.
